Lefroy Road House in Western Australia
Location: Fremantle, Western Australia
Design: Philip Stejskal Architecture
Lefroy Road House, Fremantle
A new house in South Fremantle in Western Australia on 441sqm with street frontage;
The architectural proposal grew from an investigation of the wider context and a general propensity to box things. The current form of the residential project can be seen as a rectangular volume that has been carved out to respond to sun, wind and view.
The materiality of this new home is proposed to reflect the familiar local combination of brick and corrugated iron and the clients’ desire to achieve an industrial aesthetic externally.

Defence Housing Australia in Fremantle
The first development in the area may have been when Richard Goldsmith Meares established a lime burning kiln in 1831. Meares had arrived at the Swan River Colony with Thomas Peel in the previous year.
As the area was adjacent to the relatively safe harbour of Owen’s Anchorage in Cockburn Sound, the area began to be used as an alternative destination point for ship arrivals.
The area steadily became the centre of much of Perth’s heavy industry and comprised the coal-fired power station, railway marshalling yards, abattoir as well as numerous skin drying sheds. From the 1980s however, pressures brought on by demands for residential housing triggered a process of removal of the various facilities.
